“I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.” Psalm 111:10

“The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.” James 3:17

“Knowledge puffs up — but love edifies.” 1 Corinthians 8:1

Christ crucified, and He alone, is the power and wisdom of God. All Christians should make it their particular practice to study it well. Were our faith built on human wisdom, then surely the shrewdest philosophers would be the greatest believers, whereas they are sometimes the worst infidels. The wisdom which is from above delights to dwell with the lowly and babes, who pray for it earnestly (Proverbs 11:2; Matthew 11:25). What would all knowledge avail us, then, without the knowledge of Christ! One spark of pure love yields more power than all the stores of empty human learning.

May the Lord Jesus shed His love abroad in my heart. He have I determined to know, and only Him. The knowledge of His love, as exemplified on the cross, I account my greatest wisdom and glory. Jesus! Jesus is my all in all in life, and shall be my all in all in death!

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
